Where’s The Party

from the album Somewhere Over China



Lyrics

Every night the stars come out to light another town
Just because I’m lonely doesn’t mean that gets me down
I cruise the local drive-in watching lovers holding hands
Like movie stills of Coupe de Villes and Japanese sedans

Where’s the party?
Where’s the party?
Everybody I know say they expect me to go to the party

Sometimes I wish the radio would learn another song
I’d stay at home and watch TV if there was something on
But why should I get all dressed up when there’s no place to go
Still everybody looks at me as if they think I know

Where’s the party?
Where’s the party?
Everybody I know say they expect me to go to the party
Everybody I see say they expect to see me at the party

I could stay here all night long
Waiting for her to call
Or I could put my walkman on
And never care at all

Still every night the stars come out to light another town
Just because I’m lonely doesn’t mean that gets me down

Where’s the party?
Where’s the party?
Everybody I know say they expect me to go to the party
Everybody I know say they expect her to show at the party
